Memory Lane

Back in the old city

Down the memory lanes

Treading the frozen times of yesterday


Remembering our dances in rain

I can almost feel the touch of your hands.

And smell the lost scents of your laughs.


What dissolved those moments of love?

When did one shadow abandon the other?

Why did the sands have a single set of footprints?


No vows of staying close.

No conditions to walk together.

No binds to name the relationship.


Yet cold winters later

These glorious summer storms,

Find your name as a sigh on my lips.

Memories are funny, indeed.

  1. So beautifully melancholy, Prajakta. These are feeling that all of us encounter, but you have manage to take the sadness and write a heartfelt poem. ❤
